I take issue with Publisher Weekly's Review opening remarks 'Its cloying title aside . . .' 'Seeing With the Eyes' is a anything but a sickenly sweet memoir as suggested by a misinterpretation of the title.'Seeing . . .' instead is an exquisitely crafted meditation based on verses from the Apostle Paul's Letter to the Ephesians in which he urges them to look more deeply into their experiences and souls with the eyes of their hearts to see the riches God has in store. And that is precisely what Mr. Buechner treats the reader to - his tragic earlier life later viewed through the eyes of his heart, and his discovery of great riches bestowed upon him through the lives of family and friends, his grandmother, brother, a dear friend, a wonderful young grandson among others. The Seventh Chapter will bring one to tears. It's sheer beauty of verse, its tenderness, and the prayer he composed for his dying brother, allows the reader to see with the eyes of his/her own heart the richness, the possibilities, the gifts of healing, of good relationships and the love bestowed upon us all by God.
